Samsung Galaxy S8 to use Sony IMX333 camera

The Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ are just two days away but there are still uncertainties to be unearthed. One such puzzle piece is the camera – we know it’s a 12MP single camera but not much else.

The latest rumor suggests the Galaxy star duo will premiere a new Sony IMX330 sensor – a unit that’s not even featured on Sony’s website. But that’s it – the rumor gives only a name and nothing else.

Next up in S8-related news is the Quick Launch feature which allows you to quickly open up the camera of a locked Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge by quickly pressing the home button twice. Samsung has reportedly moved the feature to the power button on the side, as seen in the screenshot below.

That’s about as much camera information we have at the moment. A recent rumor suggested that the upcoming Galaxy S8 will be able to shoot 1000fps super slow-mo videos like the Sony Xperia XZ Premium, but we haven’t heard of that since so it’s anything but certain.

As the leaks and rumors have gotten to be overwhelmingly numerous we’ve compiled a neat guide to track all of them. You’re welcome!
